Howling Cavalry

from by The Keep

lyrics

When I fall asleep,
I hide from passers by.
I can’t exist to them,
Nor them to me.

Not in this lupine fantasy.

When I fall asleep,
I run from Landseer’s stag.
He’s looking out for his,
And he’s charging me.

So I take refuge in this tree.

When I fall asleep,
I pray that I’ll be saved.
His antlers crushing bark.
No salvation I can see,

Until I hear the howls of the cavalry.

Their footprints in mine, that’s what I’d kill to see.
Instead, I just sit on my branch,
Howl and cheer with relief.

Dark eyes call me down, and beckon me into the feast.
Instead, I just sit on my branch,
Howl and cheer with relief.

My footprints in theirs, that’s what I’d die to see.
Instead, I just sit on my branch,
Howl and cheer with relief.

Maybe tonight…

I don’t feel human.
